Delta Center for the Arts LH Horton Jr Gallery presents the 4th Annual National Photography Exhibition and Awards Competition, Inventing Perspective, November 21 - December 13, 2013.
Scale and perspective are pervasive issues in the realm of fine art photography. The exhibition presents experimental works using photographic mediums that challenge our ideas of relative scale and perspective, as well as integrated use of other media in unique and creative ways. Epic panoramic, pinhole and photogram, 3D photographic works, double exposures, high speed and time-lapse images, are just some of the means photographers used to create dynamic works for this exhibition, featuring 34 images by 20 photographers.

The exhibition juror is Corey Keller, Curator of Photography, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Keller joined SFMOMA in 1999 and held a number of positions before she was promoted to her current role in 2012. Keller organized the critically acclaimed exhibition Brought to Light: Photography and the Invisible, 1840-1900 (2008), which explored the use of photography in 19th-century science, considering in particular the representation of phenomena invisible to the naked eye. Accompanied by an award-winning catalogue, the show traveled to the Albertina Museum in Vienna, Austria. With SFMOMA curators Janet Bishop and Sarah Roberts, Keller co-organized the large-scale exhibition celebrating the museum's 75th anniversary in 2010. Keller oversees Picturing Modernity, SFMOMA's presentation of its photography collection.
Most recently, Keller organized the major retrospective exhibition of photographer Francesca Woodman (2011), which traveled to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York (2012). In addition to her SFMOMA publications, Keller has contributed scholarly essays to the exhibition catalogues Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change (Corcoran Gallery of Art, 2010) and Jay DeFeo: A Retrospective (Whitney Museum of American Art, 2012). Keller has also frequently lectured on photography as part of SFMOMA's educational program and has taught at Stanford University, the San Francisco Art Institute, and the California College of the Arts.
